Lenora Allbright is 13 when her father convinces her mother, Cora, to forgo their inauspicious existence in Seattle and move to Kaneq, AK. It's 1974, and the former Vietnam POW sees a better future away from the noise and nightmares that plague him. Having been left a homestead by a buddy who died in the war, Ernt is secure in his beliefs, but never was a family less prepared for the reality of Alaska, the long, cold winters and isolation. Locals want to help out, especially classmate Matthew Walker, who likes everything about Leni. Yet the harsh conditions bring out the worst in Ernt, whose paranoia takes over their lives and exacerbates what Leni sees as the toxic relationship between her parents. The Allbrights are as green as greenhorns can be, and even first love must endure unimaginable hardship and tragedy as the wilderness tries to claim more victims.… (més)

Really good book about a family moving to Alaska. Leni is a very likable character. Great storytelling, the setting in Alaska is well described. Awesome ending. Overall very well done novel, if I related to it more I would have ratted its higher. Love this author. ( )

I loved The Nightingale, but this book was relentlessly depressing and as dark as the Alaskan winter. I was expecting an adventure story about a family coming together to face the Alaskan wilderness. What I got was an endlessly abusive father tormenting his wife and daughter. I gave it up halfway through. Would not recommend. ( )

The Great Alone: A Novel is a book about the hardships of homesteading in Alaska in the 1970s. Additionally, the story is about the effects of the Vets who served in Viet Nam and how one particular honored veteran took his anxiety out on his wife and daughter. The book is difficult to read because of the tremendous hardships that people endured. The story was well researched and written and thus received four stars in this review. ( )

Leni moves to Alaska with her Vietnam vet dad and her hippie mother in the 1970's. They are not prepared for the long, dark winter but with the help of their colorful neighbors they eek their way through their first winter. Unfortunately, her father's memories of his time as a POW in Vietnam are triggered during the winters when they are all shut in together and Leni and her mom are constantly walking on egg shells trying to keep him from attacking his wife. He eventually goes to the North Slope to get a job and earn money during the winter, but after a few years he is fired from his position. The abuse becomes more extreme and he tries to "protect" his family. Leni and her mom take drastic measures and move away from Alaska, spending some years in Seattle, but eventually Leni returns to Alaska and the boy she fell in love with. ( )
